W116 sticker quest

For those who missed the interlude:
-Get the exact size in MM, color, sticker-material used, part number, location, chassis/engine application of each sticker on the W116
-reproduce all that are NLA,  in high quality, waterproof.

I selected a great deal of stickers/samples already
Rumb created a file online that can be worked by everyone, who may have data to add:
https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=FDED54DD16F83D04!4684&authkey=!ABwJyqd8viviuZ4&ithint=file%2cxlsx

Rumb, is it possible to paste photos in that file?
It would be more user friendly that way, rather than post url-links

I would also suggest we go about this systematically, one by one.
I have selected 18 stickers that have a proven part number, but need all other additional data still
I have 40 stickers that have no data yet

I will each time post 2 stickers, and ask for you guys to add
part number                                :
the exact size in MM                     :
color(s)                                       :
sticker-material used                    :
location (photo please!)                :
chassis/engine number applicable  :
NLA/available                               :

At the same time Rumb may work the data in his Excel
Each time we have a full form of an NLA item, I will give the go ahead to do a reproduction.

Shall we start?

Use this link it has the pictures

yellow highlighted are ones I think we need, because 1. they are not available somewhere else either MB or other suppliers, and 2. have a usage on W116 chassis.

If you have information on where on the car any other labels goes, let me know and I will verify and add to the list.

I looked at all the images stan has posted so far and weeded out  many of them as not being on W116.

I will update the table from comments here.

You say 1088350088 does not belong. What is the other one you speak of?

UTn_boy

RUMB, the 108-835-00-88 was, in fact, used on the W116, but only on the early models.  Unfortunately, there is no information as to when they stopped using this particular decal.  However, I have noticed over the years that D-Jet powered W116 cars all have the 108-835-00-88, but most of the K-Jet and later have the later sticker that mounts on the core support at the top of the radiator next to the hood latch assembly.  I'm not certain of the part number for the later sticker.  The early sticker was affixed to the A/C compressor manifold behind the power steering pump. 

If the W116 is an early M-110 powered model, they used the 108-835-00-88 as well, and was affixed to the service valve on the low side of the York Compressor.  I've also seen the same label affixed tot he top of the compressor, as well.  Again, there is no consistency as to when/why about the different location of the label. 

Below are some pictures of more decals and color legends that may or may not help.  I have not checked the availability of them. 

1966 250se coupe`, black/dark green leather
1970 600 midnight blue/parchment leather
1971 300sel 6.3, papyrus white/dark red leather

1973 300sel 4.5, silver blue metallic/blue leather

108 835 0088 (together with 123 835 0088) was used at least until 1977 - below a picture of a 1977-car.
Also on a W107 from 1978 - and on W108-cars.

On the w116 they were used not later than 12/1978: then (or earlier) both were replaced by 123 835 0188.

I have reproduced both stickers for the early cars, if interested just pm me. The late sticker (123 835 0188) will
be available in short time.

The V8-cars with K-Jet (M116 and M117) do have the stickers 115 584 3621 (2x) and 117 584 3221 on the valve covers.
I can deliver a reproduction of 117 584 3221 and in near future also a reproduction of 115 584 3621 (2 needed per car).
